Friends of seasonal workers

Canadian farmers and greenhouse operators hire 60,000 seasonal workers annually. With the income the workers earn, they’re able to enrich their families’ lives and communities in Mexico and the Caribbean. 

 

The Canadian Horticultural Council has released another video entitled ‘Friends’ in its public awareness campaign of the value of seasonal workers to Canada’s horticulture industry. Employers value these individuals not only for the critical labour they provide, but as friends to work alongside. Here’s the link to the video: https://bit.ly/2CtsYSe
